Minons #106 - Video Special "Letter Rip!"


Your visit is important to us. Please hand your wallet to the nearest Minion and stare mindlessly at the screen for a message from your Minon Master, following the usual commercial interruptions.

Minions at work is inadequately supported by your purchases from our web stores and our advertisers. Help us bleed green just a little more slowly by purchasing tee-shirts, buttons, calendars, hats, undies (we kid not!), and other fine Minions at Work items at one of the following stores.

While waiting for your impending doom, pick up a Minions at Work tee-shirt or other great gift:
"Where the beatings will continue until all customers are satisfied!"


(Oh, come on. You know you want to be naughty!)

Join the Minions reminder email list or we will send a presidential candidate to kiss all your babies!* It's free, it's easy, and you'll never miss a Minions at Work cartoon (or if you do, it won't be our fault!)

*Actually, we're just going to send Minion Number Two and he's just going to bruise the little tyke's face with his gas-mask. This, however, is still better than being kissed by the candidate.)

Greetings, Ill-letterates!

Well, I warned you there would be more video, and it's come sooner than I expected. But I've climbed a bunch of the learning curve, and while "Minions Tonight" literally took me weeks and weeks, I was pretty much able to this one (which was admittedly a lot simpler) in a single day, and any follow-on "letters" episodes should go even quicker, since I've done a lot of the ground-work.

So how's about helping by sending your questions, letters and requests to "Minions Mail" care of yours truly. We'll make fun of -- uh -- answer the best ones in future installments.

See you next time.

Your Minion-master,

That was funny!
I like the favorite lair part.
"Doctor Hold'em" Ok, that's one of the better ones.
Are you gonna do a Dr. Hold'em figure?
I can see him in the gamblers vest and string tie.

Actually, there already IS a "Doctor Hold'em" figure. I'd intended to do an initial cartoon featuring him using more-or-less the same punch line, except with the Minions sitting at a blackjack table playing with the Doctor. But I didn't get around to shooting it, and I found an easier way to use the joke. No doubt he'll turn up at some point, but now I'll have to think up some new jokes for him.
